Due to the nature of my work, I receive all manner of mails and phone calls from people asking for prayers because of business and financial problems…..people from the different walks of life and nations of the world.

Listen friend, financial and business problems are real; but much more real are our victories in Christ. In Christ there is all the time and all the way victory for everyone washed in the precious blood of Jesus.

 “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.” 2Co 2:14 

Please understand that there is nothing bad in asking for prayers, but you must be willing and ready to do your part. A wise man once said “Every prayer that makes God absolutely responsible for your need is an irresponsible prayer.” There is a part you must play in the equation of financial success.

Problems can make you rich

Problems are facts of life; they are real. Problems are everywhere; everyone has one problem or another they are trying to solve especially financial problems. So, you are not alone.

If you want to make yourself rich, locate the problems people are passing through and position yourself to solve them. Wherever there is a need or problem there is also an opportunity to make money.  The truth is that the rich see opportunity to make money in everything.

 “You can get everything in life you want, if you help enough other people get what they want.” Zig Ziglar

Seeing problems as opportunities to create wealth is a major step in your quest to conquer the world of money. For the rich and the successful, identifying a problem creates the opportunity for creating a solution. Every problem people talk about is nothing but opportunity to create wealth. Seeing problems in this perspective is crucial in your quest for financial freedom.


Get equipped

In the final analysis, the chief reason you went to school was to be equipped to solve problems.

Problem solving is education at its best. Intelligence is basically the ability to solve problems.

 “…..through knowledge shall the just be delivered.” Pro 11:9 

With the proper financial education and training, you can increase your financial IQ. The higher your financial intelligence, the bigger the financial problems you can solve. Through financial education you can become richer by finding ways to solve your financial problems. Solving your financial problems becomes relatively cheap with right financial education.

At the root of most financial problems is lack of financial education.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee………” Hos 4:6 

“Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.” Isa 5:13

To succeed financially, you must understand how the world of money operates. This is the major difference between the rich and the poor. Study the rich and wealthy and you’ll discover they have very sound financial education.

Financial education is the way to go

Financial education is a major key if you must walk in financial freedom. Making money is work, but note, this dimension of work is essentially of the mind. You must invest and work on your mind to enjoy the reward of financial freedom.

This is where a lot of people miss it; they will tell you how busy they are. A thousand and one reasons why they cannot read books or attend seminars, yet things are not working for them financially.


Financial education is a key for financial freedom. Go get it!

Learn all you can about money- how to make money, keep money and make it work for you. You need to develop, equip and educate your mind to play the game of money  … and not to make excuses.

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Joh 8:32 

God believes in the power of knowledge and information to liberate and set people free from all forms of struggles including financial struggles.

There is a great financial giant within you; you can’t sell off to laziness and flimsy excuses.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us”- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The real opportunity for success lies with the person and not in the job; you can best get to the top by getting to the bottom of things.

The word “educate’ is derived from the Latin word “educo”, meaning educe, to “pull out” or to “draw out”. Financial education will “pull out” the bigger, more capable financial giant inside you.

Financial education is the critical price you must pay to walk in financial dignity. The good news is that the price of prosperity is much lower that the price of poverty and penury.

Go to work on your financial education now

Whatever financial destiny you desire is available to a much greater degree than you ever dreamed possible. But just as must have or develop muscles if you want to be a weight lifter, so must you have or develop financial muscles in order to open life’s vault of financial abundance and take what you want and deserve to have financially.


The person who knows but won’t use wealth creation principles and information is no better than the person who doesn’t know them. I want to believe you will do something with what you’re reading, won’t you? (Say yes).

Since you answered “yes,” let me say “Congratulations, you are now a prosperous person.” How did I know? Look friend, prosperity is not a destination but a journey….it’s the direction in which you are traveling. Financial education is the way to go; it will empower and position you for financial freedom. Go get financial education.

God bless you real good.

To Your Prosperity
